Curriculum

Advanced Legal Writing

B791 is taught by L. Daghe, Goodman

This course will provide you with the opportunity to explore and hone your written legal advocacy skills. Excellent legal writing is a necessary and powerful tool for everyone engaged in legal practice. We will study core legal writing principles, analyze published legal writing, and complete weekly drafting and revision assignments. Core principles apply regardless of document type. Students should expect to draft a variety of legal documents, which may include contract provisions, client letters, objective memoranda, motions and supporting briefs, legislation, bench memoranda, jury instructions, or judicial opinions. We will meet once a week in a workshop format in which individual students will present their work and the group will review and critique it. Enrollment is limited.
